Circus Games is the second book in the wild-west-meets-space-age Steampunk Mecha Mania series and takes place a week after the end of the first book, Circus Escape, with Nessie now running the mechanical machine fighting circus she was so obsessed with in the precious story. This also puts her in close quarters with Joy, the mecha operator she had become so smitten with.

The Three Sisters is a wonderfully whimsical and wholly imaginative Christmas tale that starts with the real-life controversy over the authorship of ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas (Clement Clarke Moore versus Henry Livingston) and then spirals into a Christmas Eve adventure that leads the grandchildren of the two authors in question on a not-so-merry, and sometimes scary, chase.
Charlotte Holloway has the power to call spirits and raise the dead. Five years ago, her father threw her out on the streets when he learned of her ability. Forced to make her own way in the slums of Victorian London, Charlotte camouflaged herself as a boy, calling herself Charlie and living with various street gangs.
Now eighteen, Charlie is caught stealing and thrown into jail, where she is forced to once again use the power she so hates in order to protect herself and get away. News of her raising a man from the dead travels fast and soon Charlie is being tracked down by two men: one a mad scientist who wants to put her necromancy abilities to good use and the other is the very cold, yet very handsome, Lincoln Fitzroy, leader of a secret organization who wants to stop the madman and prevent others from using Charlie’s powers for their own nefarious means.
Haunted by a crushing fear of death, a young Victorian woman discovers the secret of eternal youth—she must surrender her life to attain it, and steal heartbeats to keep it.… Read More [Book Blitz] The Heartbeat Thief By A.J. Krafton – Guest Post + Giveaway

The Circus Of The Damned is set in a shadowy Victorian-esque world sprinkled with a few steampunk elements (I pictured it with kind of a Tim Burton goes to the circus kind of vibe) and populated with a cast of unique circus performers with unusual abilities, highly organized street thugs, and one frustratingly debonair devil.… Read More [Book Review] The Circus Of The Damned By Cornelia Grey & Bean Devil Coffee Co.
